    Foal
    Yes, she's due for a farrier. Were going to take care of her feet - this was a really quick trip to take photos, in a hurry.

    What should I look for in a stallion? I can see what you're pointing out about her back - I know you can't "balance out" the flaw, but is there a specific I should look for? (Btw I took the photo from the ground, don't know if that makes a difference or not)

    @JustAwesome I really like the look of that stallion - but he's located in Australia... Am I looking at high shipping prices for AI? Not familiar with international breedings... Enlighten me?

    Foal
    Bleh... Edit timed out. This is what I meant to write:

    I looked over the pictures - I took some from a ground angle. I agree her topline isn't great, but that angle makes it look worse. I'll get a better confo shot tomorrow if I can.

    As for her feet, she's due for shoes. We were out of town, and I'm aware she is overdue. Because they are about an hour out of town, it takes some coordinating to get our farrier out. These photos were taken right after we got back, I assure you, we are taking care of her.

    On to breeding. What should I look for in a stallion to compliment her? I can see what you're pointing out about her back - I know you can't "balance out" the flaw, but is there a specific I should look for?

    @JustAwesome I really like the look of that stallion - but isn't he located in Australia? Am I looking at high shipping prices for AI? Not familiar with international breedings... Enlighten me please?

    The Awestriker is an amazing stallion, I cannot say enough about him!
    If you go to Brindella Horse Stud | Paint Horses NSW and get in contact with Tam & Murray they can explain it all to you :)

    The stallion the OP posted and the one that justawesome posted are 2 very different type of stallion. Pedigree wise I would not use the second stallion. Just is not a good match. So it will come down to what you what out of the foal. The first stallion is a very very nice one. Has been on my stallion list for some time. Will he or even the other stallion match your mare? Would need better pictures and some more info like what you want with the foal and so on.

    I never looked at the mares pedigree, so that is my bad on my behalf

    The stallion I posted has sired horses that'll halter and ride (performance bred, WP, HUS, halter, trail etc), Top show horses.

    My colt is by this sire, I highly recommend him as a sire because of how foals he has sired are, correct conformation and movement, eye catching, have brains on them and are the most quietest horses you could come across (Met other horses sired by this sire also) :)

    Thing is he is Halter WP breeding and the mare is Reining and cutting bred. Not a cross that would work very well.

    Very true, As said above, I never checked the mares pedigree, so that is an oops on my behalf!

    Foal
    Thank you very much for the feedback! Looking at the stallions, I'll get a couple of opinions from trainers in our area as well. As for the breeding of my mare, she is all cutting, so I suppose halter wouldn't be a good cross for performance...

    As for the updated photots I promised, unfortunately my puppy chewed through the cord on my laptop, so I'm going to have to replace that first. (He is so lucky he's cute....)

    And yes, that's an A&M shirt!

    To answer the above question - I'm into reining, so a reining prospect is my "best case scinerio." although I wouldn't be opposed to a good cutting sire, if it works out as such.
